Hi, there!
Your description of symptoms lead to think about intercostal neuralgy.
The treatment of Your condition include non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug programm and physiotherapy.
Radiological investigation (MRI scan) will be useful to reveal condition of thoracal vertebrae.

I hope this helps
